26 Aug 2004
I am hugely sad about this and I cried a lot today and I want people to know this man who I love a lot and who was a JP resident until a few months ago. See the link.

Carlos Arredondo, 44, was severely burned and rushed to Hollywood Regional Hospital in Florida after learning that Pfc. Alexander Arredondo had died, police said.

Blogger Challenges Jerry Falwell on Christian Family Values
26 Aug 2004
"Whenever We Read the Obscene Stories, the Voluptuous Debaucheries, the Cruel and Torturous Executions, the Unrelenting Vindictiveness, with which more than Half the Bible is filled, it Would be More Consistent that we called it the Word of a Demon, than the Word of God.

Central Park Permit Denied, Protest Will Go On!
26 Aug 2004
From the UFPJ Website:

WE ARE MARCHING! We are very disappointed in the New York State Supreme Court ruling, denying our request to rally in Central Park. But make no mistake: Our August 29 protest march is still happening! We now have a final agreement with the City for the full route of our legal, peaceful march, which will take us directly past Madison Square Garden, the site of the Republican Convention.

To see all the events that will be happening on the great lawn despite the supreme court ruling, including Rev. Billy's mass marriages who will recite the first amendment, see the calendar at http://www.counterconvention.org/phpicalendar/month.php .

The protests will go on!

You can read the corporate news accounts of how we didn't get a permit below, but since when was true protest regulated by the state?

Why Free Speech is Necessary even for Progressives
25 Aug 2004
Free Speech is necessary EVEN on progressive websites like the IMC because if our leaders are becoming big stinking socialists, and Independent media proposes stinking socialism as a solution to those leaders, SOMEONE must propose an ideology that will break the feedback loop and save us from third column fascism.
